C2H4® is a Los Angeles based contemporary brand founded by designer Yixi Chen. Immersed in cultural background from both Shanghai & LA, Yixi studied film and television production before founding the brand in 2014.
The C2H4® philosophy is deeply rooted in science and cinema paying particularly homage to the sci-fi genre with Yixi Chen and her team considering themselves as chemists – mixing and blending to create new things.
C2H4® held their debut show during New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2018 “Zero Gravity” Collection, and show for the first time during London Fashion Week Men for Fall/Winter 2019 “FM-2030” collection.
Yixi started collaboration projects since 2017 with C2H4® x Kappa “Undecayable” collection interpreting anti-corrosion in the everlasting sense for both brands. Also in 2018, Yixi continued collaborative venture with Japanese brand Number (N)ine with collection “Potential of Ego” to reintroduce the rock aesthetic.
Yixi returned to her studies in content production founding Chemist Creations® in 2018 as a creative consultancy for brands and artists. The “Workwear” by Chemist Creations® merchandise line was launched in the same year as an independent but partner brand to C2H4®. In Fall/Winter 2018, Chemist Creations® produced C2H4® “System On Carbon” collection film as a study to the priceless nature of real human emotion via envisaging the relationship between human and machine in the near future.
